"This time, we wanted just the four of us."

Nina Wadia renewed her wedding vows on Croatia’s idyllic island of Losinj.

The celebration happened 25 years after she married her husband Raiomond Mirza but it was also 25 years since the start of BBC’s Goodness Gracious Me, which kickstarted her career.

The couple decided to renew their wedding vows, this time joined by their daughter Tia and son Aidan.

Nina said: “It has been a really big year for us in a lot of ways, so we thought, ‘Let’s do something special’.

“The day was about celebrating our kids.

“When she was younger, Tia said the funniest thing which prompted all of this.

“When she was looking at our wedding photos, she said to me, ‘Mum, how come I didn’t get to come to the wedding day? I wanted to be there!’

“She was very excited when we decided to renew our vows – my son, not so much.

“He’s a 16-year-old boy so he’s not got a romantic bone in his body!

“But he came around when we told him where we were going. We had a huge wedding first time around. This time, we wanted just the four of us.”

Nina and Raiomond originally got married in the latter’s native Canada, a few months after they were introduced by Nina’s sister.

This time, the couple chose the “breathtakingly beautiful” Hotel Bellevue for their celebration.

The family spent the morning getting ready – Aidan with his father and Tia with her mother.

Nina wore an embellished Karen Millen dress with kimono-style sleeves, accessorised with earrings from Pinar Ozevlat.

Elaborating on her outfit, the EastEnders star said:

“For my wedding, I wore a simple white and gold sari, so I wanted to do things differently this time and incorporate more of my British side than my Indian side – it felt right.”

Once at the hotel ground’s chapel, Nina walked up the aisle hand in hand with Tia, who wore a blush pink slip dress.

Nina Wadia told Hello Magazine: “It was an emotional moment.

“She was taking care of me the whole day. Every few minutes, she would say, ‘You okay, Mum? You look really pretty, Mum’.”

Raiomond, who married Nina in 1998, said:

“I thought to myself, ‘If I were laying eyes on Nina for the first time ever, my first thought would still be I’m gonna marry you’.”

After the ceremony, the celebrations continued into the night.

After watching the sunset over the Adriatic Sea, the family enjoyed a Michelin-star dinner, paired with local Croatian wines, at the Restaurant Alfred Keller in the neighbouring Boutique Hotel Alhambra.

Nina Wadia added: “Raiomond and I talked and drank wine into the night – it was just lovely.”
